Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting


Why did I make these?

I now have 12 cupcakes sitting on my counter that need to be consumed. 12 amazingly delicious, totally guilty, rich and decadent chocolate peanut butter cupcakes.

Well, actually now that I am writing this, there are three left. Oops.

I should feel bad. But I don’t. I feel awesome. These are awesome. You are awesome if you make them.

What a great way to start off your weekend. Had a good week at work? Treat yourself to cupcakes. Graduating soon? Cupcakes. Need a chocolate fix? These are for you.

You’re welcome.
